Here are the most often-asked questions for you to ponder prior to committing to your first session with me.
These questions might help you determine if this therapy approach is suitable for you.
If your question was not answered here I always welcome the opportunity to talk with you individually via a complimentary consultation.
If you are new to So Subtle Therapies and would like to experience Sound Therapy in person, please reserve New Client Sound Therapy first. At your initial session, we will determine the best therapy approach and most suitable sessions for your next visit.
What should I know before booking a session?
Sessions at So Subtle are Not a Typical Sound Bath Experience!
Each session is detailed specifically for your individual needs by incorporating sound frequency, light frequency, Bioacoustics, and Bioenergy combined.
I meet you with the sound at the stage of healing you are at right now. Which can’t be done in a group setting.
Each session is built upon each other as your body releases more “energy blocks” and is ready for a new level of release.
A session at So Subtle is not a replacement therapy for any professional therapy that you may be undergoing. It is a compliment to your already existing wellness routine.
I am glad to discuss the spiritual motives for such conditions but I am unable to diagnose, prescribe, treat, or cure any illnesses that require medical or psychiatric attention.
Can So Subtle Therapy conflict with the Medications I am currently on?
Individuals on prescription medications will need to monitor their prescription intake.
As your energetic field modulates with each Sound Therapy you might notice that the medications you are taking becoming too strong.
Learn about the side effects and symptoms of an overdose of your particular medication. Your medical doctor can help you with that.
Potentially some medications will need to be adjusted in dosage, in some cases very early into the sound+energy therapy. We will go over this in more detail on our first visit.
Listen to your body and communicate with your medical doctor. Let your medical provider know that you are undergoing alternative therapy and would like to monitor your meds.
I am not a medical professional and I am not able to guide or advise you on your medication regulation.
If you are taking medications – hydrate before and after each session – it is especially important!
What’s a Vibrational – Self Healing Companion?
One who helps another(one) accelerate her/his awareness, which leads to greater levels of understanding, liberation, and self-empowerment.
As your Self Healing companion, my job is to assist you to see grander possibilities and unlock the door to an abundance of natural gifts within you.
This process is achieved through multiple modalities and instruments.
Do you work with kids?
Yes. Shock and/or trauma are best to be addressed energetically while the child is young, to prevent unnecessary suffering. Please schedule a complimentary call to go over the details.
How many sessions do I need before I feel the results?
The number of sessions depends on the emotional rather than the physical complexity of the condition. After just one session you might find that enough emotional charge has been lifted and the body can promptly start to heal itself. For more deep-rooted or chronic imbalances a number of sessions are required.
One of the biggest advantages of sound/energy sessions is that people respond very quickly to just a few sessions. It is one of the fastest healing techniques I have ever experienced or known.
Emotional and to some degree spiritual shifts are normally felt instantly.
You should expect distress levels to change instantly but acute conditions may require more healing time. Even if multiple sessions are required you should anticipate feeling different from the first session onwards.
Healing is a process and it requires patience, love, and compassion. One should never rush it and be kind to oneself.
What might I gain from the SoSubtle sessions?
- Increased sense of calm and well-being along with a sense that all is right with the world.
- Reduction in physical and emotional pain
- Deeper and more restful sleep
- More harmonious home environment
- Some refer to it as “ liberation of the soul”
- Heightened awareness and acceptance of life circumstances
- Personal transformation – improved relationships
Who are your clients?
They come from all walks of life and are diverse but share many commonalities. Some, might be new to this unconventional approach but feel a certain curiosity about learning and experiencing sound and energy healing.
Other clients already have experience and knowledge with the healing arts and seek accelerated personal evolution and healing, or they might be healers or have a desire to become one and are interested in increasing their ability to heal by integrating sound and subtle energy practices.
Do you recommend any practical tools to use at home to support my healing process?
It’s always best to supplement your energy as a daily practice at home by any means suitable for you. Most of my clients choose to use Tuning Forks as an addition to their already established Yoga, Chigong, and/or Meditation practices.
I personally feel that starting with a tuning fork is the most suitable option for most individuals. It’s a more economical, versatile, and compact tool which makes it ideal for those who travel a lot.
Some choose Singing bowls or other similar instruments. The choice is always yours.
If you choose to incorporate sound frequency as your daily practice I can proved you with some guidance on how to utilize the tools you have.
If you choose not to invest in any tools, other options are available, and we can explore them together during your visit.
But I do strongly believe personal healing expediates only when we intentionally and consciously get engaged with the process. That’s why tools can be of such great service.
What is distance/remote healing?
Distant healing is a term that refers to an energy healing session where the practitioner and the client are not in the same room together.
Some So Subtle sessions can be conducted over a distance, completely without verbal communication.
While it may seem unusual that a practitioner can help someone so profoundly over a distance, consider that vibrational energy healing does not involve any physical contact or direct connection between practitioner and client even during an in-person session.
Are the remote sessions as effective as in-person sessions?
Distance/remote sessions are just as, if not more effective for some people, as in-person sessions. Some clients feel more receptive to the session and prefer being completely alone during this healing process. In the realm of the spirit, there is no time and space. Through concentrated prayer, we will connect with the Creator of All That Is, and the work is directly facilitated.
Many clients report sensing the distance healing session as if they were with me in person.
Are there any side effects after a sound/energy session?
Following any particularly in-depth energy balancing session, you may experience symptoms of physical detox throughout the coming days, especially if the physical body is in poor energetic condition. This will lessen with each passing day and with each following session. This is a normal response that can vary in intensity.
These symptoms could be avoided or greatly reduced by staying hydrated prior to and after the session, walking outside barefoot, moving your body-especially stretching your body, and/or taking a 20 -30 min Epsom salt bath or foot soak after each therapy session.
How to prepare for my first therapy session @ So Subtle
For your sessions please wear comfortable clothing without any zippers, buttons, or belts. A T-shirt, yoga pants, joggers, or sweatpants are perfect for these sessions. All sessions are done entirely clothed lying down on the massage table or sitting down in the chair. You will be asked to remove your shoes, so please wear or bring a pair of socks for your comfort if you like.
Drink plenty of water before your session as water holds sound-conductive properties. To help the body eliminate toxins released during the therapy, hydrating with sufficient water after appointments is highly beneficial.
Be sure to schedule time for yourself after your sessions. If you can, take time after your appointment and go for a walk outside or get a cup of your favorite drink and just be. Be gentle with yourself, allow emotions to surface, and don’t judge yourself, regardless of how you need to process.
Go into your first sessions with an open mind—Trust your gut and don’t be afraid to sit with some discomfort, especially initially. After all sound and energy therapy is a process of unveiling parts of yourself that possibly have been neglected for a very long period of time. And this uncovering can feel uncomfortable to some individuals, especially in the beginning.
What Are your spiritual beliefs and what led you to become a sound therapist?
I see and I acknowledge One God – Universal Wisdom within all. I nor reject nor do I subscribe to any religion, sect, and/or religious/spiritual organizations.
Even though I never suggest my spiritual beliefs to my clients during our sessions, my work always reflects it!
If this doesn’t resonate with you – you might be resisting the healing, and it is best to find a practitioner who resonates with your spiritual beliefs.
I believe in God that lives within me and in everyone and in everything… Always!.
My upbringing was Christian. From a very young age, I was resisting placing my whole life and trust into one book which I could not read in its originality in the language I understand.
Growing up my Christian surroundings were not always reflecting love, peace, compassion, forgiveness, and understanding. And that didn’t resonate with me well.
So by age of 18, I entirely left the Baptist congregation and walked my life consistently in a continuous search for Truth -in many other religions, many ancient texts, other opinions, etc…
While living a “normal busy” life as most of us do, my life tribulations and experiences led me to witness the Life Force from many viewpoints, perspectives, and mindsets and it continues to widen each and every day.
The God I believe in is forgiving, always guides me – always speaks to and through me. Only my dishonesty and fear can block Its voice -then my earthly ego will take over.
I believe I punish myself, most of the time unknowingly, with my own loaded suppressed emotions, hurts, and trauma. As well as my lingering regrets, envy, jealousy, fear, contradictions, denials, and dishonesty to myself and others.
I create my own suffering by my own choosings(unconsciously) here on earth by blocking the Devine Wisdom within, which prevents me to occupy this present moment fully. And my fears only reinforce this reality further the longer I believe in a god/power outside of me.
My deep journey inward and healing started after I realized this unconscious self-perpetuating cycle within me that I create mainly unknowingly.
Just like most of us, I was always frightened to look deep within me – until Life made me available, for me to stay still, in pain and agony for quite some time!
In that pain and suffering, I was able to acknowledge and recognize how I construct the world I experience. By fully witnessing the Power inside of me – ceased my search for external Wisdom! And my healing began immediately…
We don’t have to push ourselves to the limit like I did, in order to find peace within. Our daily pains, aches, anxieties, frustrations, etc. are our small reminders to stop and look deep inside.
The sound was my major tool to get me in life to where I am now.
The sound brought me to feel my body fully, it taught me to be still and present so I could hear clearly my Guidance within.
I do not claim I have it all figured out, that would be foolish 😊 I see life as a journey where you get to make lots of “mistakes”. We all get to choose how we desire to navigate this passage of time!
And this is where I am now.
This is my present wisdom of God Creator of All and my experience of this wondrous Power continues to grow and expand… at which I marvel every day.
If you at all resonate with me here and the work I do, I would love to be a stepping stone on your journey!
I am thrilled to be able to share my life passion and purpose with you! – Irina
